Academics

Embers provides its students a program of academic excellence which is mission driven, well planned, and validly assessed.

Terra Nova Assessment

Every March, all 3rd – 5th grade students take a yearly assessment, the Terra Nova Tests. These tests assess Embers students in all areas of Reading, Language Arts and Math.
Embers cumulative average for graduating 5th grade students is consistently in the +90th percentile, compared to fifth graders throughout the country.

 

What people are saying…

“What wonderful fifth graders you have at Embers! They were terrific in the classroom – very eager to participate. I was very impressed with them, and I look forward to having them next year! Keep up the good work!”

“Embers girls are well prepared for 6th grade and are especially nice and welcoming to other students. You can tell what girls come from Embers because they know how to include everyone in the group.”

“Yesterday at Northridge Prep, Mr. Burns, middle school history teacher, told my husband and me how well prepared the boys are. They excel in their writing skills. He asked his students to do some research and some of the boys did not have a clue about what to do. But he told us that the Embers boys immediately responded: “Oh, we know… Embers taught us what it is and how to do it.”
